When school days at last have been ended, 

And the big world we take as our stage; 
When the Book of Life 's open before us, 

And we tremblingly turn the first page, 
We shall pause for a while in the turning — 

Drift back for a moment in dreams, 
Till the light of our love for St. Mary's 

Surrounds us with soft shining beams. 

We shall see all our days there transfigured, 

Recalled in our vision serene, 
The whole as a precious fabric 

With friendship and love for its sheen; 
The dream-pictures, books, and our lessons 

As values not trivial nor small, 
But the bonds of our faith in St. Mary's 

The force that had strength above all. 

As onward we go in the future — 

Awake from our dream of the past — 
We will carry St. Mary's traditions 

Wherever our lot may be cast — 
And no one shall falter, shall waver, 

But bravely walkingttfar 
We shall guide our course by her teachings 

As the mariner follows the star. 



To 

Miss Eleanor Walter Thomas 

Our Wise Counselor, Tireless Helper, and Loyal Friend 

This Fourteenth Volume of The Muse 

is affectionately dedicated 

by the Senior Class 

for the St. Mary's Girls of 1912 




Misb Eleanor Walter Thomas 
Lady Principal 



"For truth has such a face and such a mien 
As to be lov'd needs only to be seen." 




Alma Mater 



Tune — "Believe me if all those endearing young charms.' 



St. Mary'H! wherever thy daughters may be, 

They love thy high praises to sing, 
And tell of thy beauties of campus and tree 

Around which sweet memories cling; 
They may wander afar, out of reach of thy name, 

Afar, out of sight of thy grove, 
But the thought of St. Mary's aye kindles a flame 

Of sweet recollections and love. 

Beloved St. Mary's! how great is our debt! 

Thou hast cared for thy daughters full well; 
They can never thy happy instructions forget, 

Nor fail of thy virtues to tell. 
The love that they feel is a heritage pure; 

An experience wholesome and sweet. 
Through fast rolling years it will grow and endure; 

Be a lamp and a guide to their feet. 

May the future unite all the good of thy past 

With the best that new knowledge can bring. 
Ever onward and upward thy course! To the last 

Be thou steadfast in every good thing. 
Generations to come may thy fair daughters still 

Fondly think on thy halls and thy grove 
And carry thy teachings — o'er woodland and hill — 

Of earnestness, wisdom, and love. 

H. E. H., 1905.

Bishop Cheshire and St. Mary's 

This volume of the Annual Muse marks the passing of the seventieth year of St. 
Mary's, and the fourteenth of the School as the property of the Church. From the ac- 
quisition of St. Mary's by the Church, in 1897, the Bishop of North Carolina has been the 
President of the Board of Trustees and Chairman of the Executive Committee, and St. 
Mary's has had no better friend. The depths of his faith in the School and his estimate 
of it were never more clearly shown than in his Annual Address to the Diocesan Conven- 
tion delivered in Durham, May 8th, 1912. 

Bishop Cheshire on that occasion said : 

This is by far the most important institution of the Church in our Diocese and in 
our State. Next after the University of the South at Sewanee it is the most important 
church institution in the South. It may not be generally known by our own people even, 
but it is one of the most important church institutions in our whole country. It is our 
largest church boarding school for girls in the United States, and on the whole I believe 
it is the best. 

It is important for what it has been, for what it has done, for the characters it has 
formed, for the noble and ennobling lives which have gone out from it to bless the Church 
and the community. It is important for what it is, and for what it is doing, in continuing 
that supply of cultivated, refined, devoted, godly young women who every year go out 
from it to enrich our home life, and sometimes to pass on the light to other lands. It is 
important in the mere material value of the property and appliances there accumulated 
for carrying on that highest and noblest of all work — the nurture and training of God's 
children in truth and holiness. ****** 

If God should spare my life until the 15th day of October, 1913, just about eighteen 
months from this time, I shall have completed twenty years since my consecration as 
your Bishop. The greatest work done in this Diocese within my day has been the estab-. 
lishment of St. Mary's School as an institution of the Church. I should like to celebrate 
the twentieth anniversary of my consecration by seeing the debt on St. Mary's School 
fully paid, or provided for, and one hundred thousand dollars raised as the beginning of 
an endowment. With the help of the Diocese, and with the sympathetic cooperation 
of this Convention, I should like to devote myself and my endeavors for the next eighteen 
months primarily to this work. I believe it can be done. Will this Convention join me 
in an earnest endeavor to do it?

The Alumnae Association of St. Mary's, which was first established in 1880 and meets 
annually at Commencement, has done effective work in aiding the progress of the School, 
and grows yearly stronger and more vigorous. 

The Alumnae are organized as far as possible into local Chapters in their several cities 
and towns, and these Chapters hold semi-annual meetings on November 1st, Founders' 
Day, and May 12th, Alumnae Day, each year. 

There are upwards of one hundred and fifty active members of the Raleigh Alumnae 
Chapter, and there are active Chapters in New York and Baltimore, as well as in many 
places nearer home. 



The Two Best-known and Best-loved Daughters of St. Mary's 

In whose honor the Alumnae Scholarships now being raised are to be named 




Mrs. Mary {Johnson) Iredell 

Honorary President of Ike Alumnae Association 

who has given the greater part of a life of use- 
fulness to the work of St. Mary's, as student, 
as student-assistant, as teacher, as traveling rep- 
resentative, as organizer of the Al umn ae and as 
President of the Al umn ae Association. 



Miss Kate McKimmon 

Secretary of the Alumnae Association 

who has been, since 1864, first pupil and then 
teacher at St. Mary's, and whose influence has 
ever been a source of strength to St. Mary's girls. 

"Foi en Tout" 

"To you it has been given to do a constant, silent work 
For God and women; to teach to others truth 
By your exceeding truthfulness; 
To strengthen others' faith by your unswerving 

faithfulness 
To work, to friends, to God."

The Class Prophecy 

With the great Teleradian — see its picture above — 

The latest and newest invention, 
You may look through the future and see, if you please, 

Just whatever person you mention. 




So in search of my classmates of the year 1912- 
To find out what each has to do, 

I so fix the focus that I'm able to leap 
To the good year 1942. 



Patient Patsey is writing a "system for thinking" 
Which is based on both Logic and Science, 

And her wisdom is such that she looks down on men 
And treats them with scornful defiance. 



At a new institution of morals and learning 
A renowned theological teacher, 

Lordly Lina, luxuriates, ambitious now 
To make of herself a great preacher. 





While behold! Fairy Fan is a fat prima donna 

And sings for the latest Victrola; 
When a maiden is heart-sick from love or from grief 

The voice of our Fan will console her. 



^fef" 




On a ranch away out 'mid the mounts of Montana- 
Though alas! her lassoing is o'er — 

Merry Margaret is riding a spirited steed 
As she drives home her cattle galore. 



On the stage, midst the glare of the brilliant foot-lights, 

In the gayest of still "gay Paree," 
Frivolous Frances is playing a tambourine tune 

And dancing about in great glee. 





Distractedly devoted to all organizations, 
Though still peaceful and calm as a dove, 

Austere Anna is setting the whole world on fire 
With her pellucid lectures on love. 



Niftie Nellie, the fairest of all our fair class, 
With true genius in South Polar wilds 

Is "running" a mission, converting lost souls 
And her faith is as staunch as a child's. 





Estimable Elizabeth is still our "Miss Hughes "- 

A fearfully fiery old maid; 
She is founding a refuge for poor homeless cats, 

I have just seen the corner stone laid. 



'Tis thus then, dear Reader, when those whom you love, 
You would think of in regions Arcadian, 

You may see for yourself what their fate is to be 
With this wonderful new Teleradian. 

E. H. 





The choicest work of nature 
Is the Class of Nineteen Twelve, 
And into nature's secrets 
We're prepared to dig and delve. 
We are up in Mathematics — 
In Science and in Classics — 
We're dandies in pneumatics 
And e — lee — trie — i — ty! 
In syntax, prose and prosody 
We class as Number One, 
And for real erudition 
Nought beats us 'neath the sun; 
Our wisdom is tremendous 
And still we're cute and witty, 
Our learning is stupendous — 
And I at least am pretty. 



We're a classy class of Seniors 
And the Senior Classic Class, 
We're a classy class in classics 
And a classy, classic class!

Miss Thomas' Table 



Some girls may lead the style, we know, for dress or coat or hat, 
We do not wish to set the pace in trivial things like that; 

Our mission is a noble one, we guide the dining hall — 
Our minions — teachers, pupils, clock — obey us one and all. 

What need of fashions's lofty heights ? 
We set the pace in appetites!

Some Attempts at Nonsense Rhymes 

She always loses everything, 

And life to her is hilly; 
She'd lose her head if it were loose, 

This same old Frances Lilly. 

Why, what's become of mashes? 

It looks as if they've fled; 
And if it weren't for Polky, 

We'd think they all were dead. 

Now here comes our friend Zona, 

'Tis funny to relate, 
I know you won't believe me — 

Not quite an hour late. 

E. Tarry can do those things 

That would attract a man; 
She plays, she sings, she draws, she paints — 

And helps the West Wing Band ! 

Something queer will surely happen, 

You'd best watch out a while — 
For things look most unusual, 

When Mary Lamb won't smile. 

If you want to hear a good (?) pun 

To scare away your blues, 
Don't waste your time in searching, 

Just go to our friend Hughes. 

Oh, wasn't it too funny 

The night of the debate! 
For Lina looked as tall and thin 

As if she never ate; 

And Mary, she was round and fat 

Just like a butter-ball ; 
But if she had looked otherwise, 

She'd ne'er been known at all!

A Dream 



I dreamed I saw six Solomons 

Ma-jes-ti-cal-ly pass; 
I waked and found it really was 

The Pedagogy Class. 
"A thinking woman 's hard to find," 

I said, "alas, alas!" 

I dreamed I heard the primal din 
That went with Babel's fall; 

I waked and found I really was 
At lunch in Clement Hall. 
"They really keep so still," I said, 
"I can not sleep at all." 

I dreamed I ate a heavenly meal 
Within the pearly gates; 

I waked and found it really was 
Our good old friend pertates. 
"Come, come, as well cheer up," I said, 
"You can't escape the fates." 

I dreamed I smelled the sulphur fumes 

From regions of the bad; 
I waked and found it really was 
Merely a West Wing fad. 
"The freshness of these infant pranks," 
I said, "does make me glad." 

I dreamed I saw a rocket's glare 
Light up the western sky; 

I waked and found it really was 
A gym suit passing by. 
" 'Tis truly very red," I said, 

"That 's truth I can't deny." 



Daffodils 

If Pleasant missed her French lesson would Miss Lily Skinner? 

In the Monitors' meeting was Bessie Wright? 

If Helen lost Catherine would Janie Hunt? 

If Mr. Jones went to sleep would his Ingersoll wateh? 

If Smithfield ham is thirty cents how much is Nottingham? 

When the flash-light was taken at dinner did Dorothy Budge? 

How much is Mary Owen for the Muse? 

If Stone is smooth is Wood-ruff? 

Would Elizabeth Tarry and Penelope Gallup, if Louise Badham? 

If Alice Harris and Thomasine Edwards, is Sadie Williams? 



When Margaret puts her Broadfoot down Dorothy can't Budge, even if Mildred 
weren't Holding her. 

After you've been standing over the Stovall day you don't feel quite at Peace with the 
world. 

Hunt the world over, Tarry where you will among all Peoples, you'll never again see 
a Gaylord who claims to be up on Stiles wear a Woodruff! 

Martha was Wright after all when she tried to Sizer up, but she needn't have been so 
Savage about it, or tried to Palmer off as a Bruce's descendant when she knew she was 
only Adams. 

Not everyone can tell a Lilly bulb from a Leak. 



Alice 




On the night before school closed — December sixteenth — 

In the year of nineteen and eleven, 
The girls all together in wide-eyed surprise 

Were told to assemble at seven, 
For waiting for them was a mystery dark 

For their delectation and glee. 
Before we got seated we guessed what it was — 

A play by our own Fa-cul-tee! 

The play was our fav-rite, particular joy, 
Of Alice in Wonderland's maze, 

And if you will listen a moment or two 
I'll tell you what there met our gaze. 

^ When up went the curtain there Alice herself 

^^^ Was disclosed, sound asleep on the grass; 

jH Miss Hayward, we guessed her, with clapping and shouts — 

^SmBnr ■~ ! ' ie waked, and strange tilings came to pass. 

JB £■ A tiny, queer creature came hopping along; 

"^^^^ White Rabbit, Miss Thomas, our guess is. 

Mr O look at the Duchess pursued by the Cook — 

•* We roared with delight at their dresses 

And the strange things that happened, their antics and jokes. 
O think of the White Rabbit's wiles 
While courting the Duchess with ardor and zest, 

And think of the Cheshire Cat's smiles! 
The Cat was Miss Sutton, Miss Katie the Cook, 

The Duchess Miss Davis — all three 
Were "perfectly splendid" and voted by all 

As funny as funny could be. 
A bugle is sounded and on to the stage 

A stately procession appears — 
The King of Hearts, Queen of Hearts, Knave, 
and so forth 
Are greeted with shrieks and mad cheers. 

The whole court assembles, the music is gay, 
King Cruik and Queen Lil lead the Ball. 
The curtain is falling, the first act is done, 
And we gasp in delight at it all. 



Miss Luney the March Hare, Miss Lane the 
Dormouse, 

And Blinn the Mad Hatter — the three 
Are seated at table and sadly converse 

As they entertain Alice at tea. 









So the second act opens and the tea party lasts 

Till Mock Turtle with Gryphon appears. 
Mock Turtle — Miss Fenner — relates a sad tale 
And the tea party sheds a few tears. 
But the scene is enlivened, the music strikes up, 

The Mock Turtle and Gryphon step out — 
They dance and cut capers with shouting and songs 

And go reeling and prancing about 
Till White Rabbit enters and summons them all 

To appear at the next term of Court, 
For the Queen's tarts are stolen, the Knave is the thief, 

Or at least that is what's the report, 
They all must be present to witness the thing 

Or if not as witness, then juror, 
So the Second Act closes, the curtain goes down 

While the clapping approaches a furore. 

O the stately Third Act, the King on the Throne 

With the Queen frowning darkly beside him; 
But the poor King is flustered, the crime he can't prove, 

And the Queen and the Courtiers deride him. 
The trial proceeds — each witness is called, 

But the mystery will not unravel 
Till White Rabbit confesses that he did the deed — 

In the uproar the King strikes his gavel 
And pronounces a blessing while he gives as a bride 

The Duchess to ardent White Rabbit. 

Our sides aching with laughter we view the last scene — 
The Court has passed out in confusion, 
And we come back to earth just as Alice herself 
Awakes from the dream's gay delusion. 

Our tears of mirth drying, we rush gaily out, 
And our talk when boiled down to a word — 
"It was great!" "It was truly the time of my life!" 
Is the verdict on every side heard.

Mildly Personal 



Alice Lacy missed a question in her English class today; 
Georgia F. for fourteen seconds did not have a word to say; 
Mary Bryan did such studying that her hair all turned to gray — 
Am I dreaming, or am I at St. Mary's ? 

Julia Cooper got too much fresh air in the "dorm " the other night; 
Patsey Smith and Alice Harris had a rousing pillow fight; 
E. Maxwell rose at five and went to walk by candle light — 
Am I dreaming, or am I at St. Mary's ? 

N. Hendricks failed to go down town the other afternoon; 
Tallulah dear shed bitter tears 'cause the light bell rang so soon; 
E. Johnson's fallen in love — poor thing — with the man who's in 
the moon. 

Am I dreaming, or am I at St. Mary's ? 

S. Williams had no box from home for upwards of a week; 

N. Shields's voice has strengthened so you can almost hear her 

speak; 
And Thomasine has softened so that you'd really call her meek — 
Am I dreaming, or am I at St. Mary's? 

Lillie Mae lived through a Saturday without a "suitor's" call; 
Jeanette Bruce didn't care to go to see the game of ball ; 
Hattie S. complained to Hoppe that they both were quite too tall — 
Am I dreaming, or am I at St. Mary's ? 

In the Teachers' Meeting Monday night Ella King got "very 

good"; 
G. Adams didn't go to town though Miss Thomas said she could; 
Mary Lamb refused to try to laugh, and couldn't if she would — 
Am I dreaming, or am I at St. Mary's? 

M. Smith and also Julia Rowe were quiet in the dorm.; 
Myrtle Warren was reported but has promised to reform; 
K. Pender, too, in Botany knew a tuber from a corm — 
Am I dreaming, or am I at St. Mary's? 

Not a girl has skipped a duty or been late for dear knows when; 
No one needs to be reported — not even now and then; 
But there goes the bell for "lights out" — the clock is striking ten — 
I am dreaming; no, this can not be St. Mary's.

The first sorority chapter at St. Mary's 
(Alpha Kappa Psi) was organized in 1900. 
Chapters of the three other sororities were or- 
ganized in the next two years. All were organ- 
ized as local chapters and later became affiliated 
with national sororities. 

The number of sororities was limited to four 
in 1904 and these four continued to receive 
silent recognition and to be a perceptible force 
in the student-life of St. Mary's until Septem- 
ber, 1910, when in deference to the wishes of 
the Rector the sororities by mutual agreement 
voluntarily surrendered their charters to their 
respective national organizations, and sororities 
ceased to exist for St. Mary's.

"What arc the dear girls leaving for?" 

Asked little newish maid. 
"They've finished up their good work here," 

Her kind companion said. 
"They've cornered all the witches, dear, 

And chased away the cats ; 
"They've solved the midnight mysteries, 

And jollied all the frats. 
"They've set the style in manners, 

In dresses and in hats; 
"And they seek new fields to conquer in the morning 

"What arc those strange signs on the bags?" 

Asked little newish maid. 
"Those are the trademarks of the goods," 

Her kind companion said. 
"They protect the 'rank outsider,' dear, 

From many a foolish slip; 
"They impress upon the sisters, too, 

The importance of the grip; 
''And they demonstrate to all who seek 

The meaning of this trip — 
"For they seek new fields to conquer in the morning."

Never Yet 



The monthly Muse is out on time — 

Never yet. 
Skipping is no more a crime — 

Never yet. 
Miss Sutton never sits on us, 
F. Lilly keeps an awful fuss, 
And Kate Smith's room 's in a muss — 

Never yet. 

Athletics has become the craze — 

Never yet. 
No one says "Dues" for days and days- 

Never yet. 
Sallie Bett is late no more, 
Quiet reigns on the West Wing floor, 
M. Alston get reports galore — 

Never yet. 

Sue May deV. once paused for breath — 

Never yet. 
And J. Hunt studies half to death — 

Never yet. 
Oh, how we love that Science D! 
"Mashes" here have ceased to be. 
The Seniors are so humble, gee! 

Never yet. 

The Botanists take one long walk — 

Never yet. 
J. Rees annoys with ceaseless talk — 

Never yet. 
On our exams, we always pass, 
The Muse suits Mr. C. at last, 
M. Butler's lowest in her class — 

Never yet. 

Every light is out at ten — 

Never yet. 
The Muse Club meetings 're at an end — 

Never yet. 
And as the end is drawing nigh, 
We hear each plaintive Senior sigh — 
"Why can't I be a Fresh, oh, why?" 

Never yet.
